Centre for Reflection at
Aston Tirrold

The Centre for Reflection at Aston Tirrold offers a place for people of all ages and different social, religious and personal backgrounds to reflect on their spiritual journey through life.

The Centre runs a programme of workshops, quiet days and talks and is available for a group to make a booking for its own purpose. It is used for retreats, quiet days, talks, workshops, celebrations/parties, meditation, music making, training, away days and meetings.

It is here to be a place of hospitality, of caring and creativity, of non-judgemental acceptance, of exchange in learning and teaching, and of silent retreat and listening to God. Its rural location,  and nearby footpaths provide an opportunity to explore the connection between the outer landscape and our inner spiritual journey.
